We are pleased to report another successful stall at the GMB conference 2018. We have take orders for Banners, and Flags as well as our traditional wooden garden products as well as raising a significant amount f money in the way of donations. It wasn't only about doing business either, one of our stalwart supporters Joe Smith, is captured moving a motion on Supported Employment. A subject very close to our hearts. A massive and heartfelt thank you to everyone in the GMB who, as always, have been so generous with their help, support, and their hospitality. it is really appreciated by our troops in York As well as successful week at congress, we have received a magnificent letter of support from a dear friend and comrade who stood by Remploy Workers in many a battle with the bosses and various Governments. He was the Chair of the Remploy Trade Union Consortium and is now general Secretary of the biggest Trade Union in the Country, Len McCluskey, General Secretary of Unite. Len has always supported disabled workers and has been a good friend and ally of the Cooperative since we opened our doors in 2010.

Here at York DWC we remember our Friends and Comrades who fought and campaigned alongside disabled workers in Remploy. One of those friends and comrades is now our local MP Rachel Maskell, who last week visited our factory here in York. Rachel was interested in our work and our products, but as always with Rachel its the people that we support and employ who are the real stars of the show. She appeared impressed with our work and was keen to offer her support to our organisation. Since the Remploy factory closed its doors for the last time in York in 2008 there has been a vacuum created for the support and employment of workers with disabilities. Our aim when we opened in 2010 was to try and fill as much as we could, that vacuum. We have over the years have had a degree of success with helping and supporting workers who would have found it difficult to find support had we not been in existence. it is fairly clear that the situation will not get any better until we have a Labour Government, who we are are confident will reverse the inhuman policies of the previous ConDem and Tory Governments perpetuated by May and her Cronies. We thank Rachel for her help and support and look forward to further visits from her and she will always have a warm welcome here with us.

Our amazing band of workers and supporters have been working their socks off this week, getting things ready for our stall at the GMB Congress in Brighton which takes place from 3rd June until 6th June in the Brighton Centre. But before that we are really looking forward to, and excited by, the visit by the York Member of Parliament Rachel Maskell MP, tomorrow. Rachel has been a loyal friend and supporter to Remploy Workers over the years. She sat on the Remploy Trade Union Consortium for her Union Unite and stood with us shoulder to shoulder in many battles both with Government and Employer. We are confident that Rachel will be as loyal a friend to the Disabled workers here in York DWC as she was when she represented disabled workers in Remploy.
